Happy birthday Shannon! and a drabble

Happy birthday to limerickgirl


I wrote you a limerick; opinions expressed in the verse are not intended as a faithful representation of your real opinions, they just make the rhyme come out right.

There was a young lady called Shannon
Who declared that Spike/Buffy was fanon
The Spuffies were sad
But then they got mad
And defended their ‘ship’ with a cannon.

Also here is a drabble from the ‘Princess Bride’ fandom. Sheer idiocy, I suppose, and probably way too obvious. But at least it’s 100 words. Rating PG.


I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues


Inigo Montoya duelled with his foe the six-fingered man. Cut, parry, thrust, riposte; the deadly Spaniard drove Count Rugen back through the palace with remorseless ferocity. Eventually they reached a room, beyond the laundry, where vats of indigo bubbled ready to stain cloth for guard uniforms. Inigo forced Count Rugen to retreat onto a walkway over the vats. The six-fingered man backed away until he came to the end of the walkway and stood precariously above the largest of the tubs of boiling liquid.

“Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya,” the Spaniard said. “You killed my father. Prepare to dye.”

Sure it wasn't Indigo Montoya?

Have I ever told my Dread Pirate Roberts story on livejournal?

It was the Inigo/Indigo thing that was the inspiration for this lunacy.

I don't think you ever have told your Dread Pirate Roberts story on LiveJournal, no.

*sniggers rather uncontrollably* Hee!

Love the limerick too - 'tis both funny and true, dammit!

Thank you!

It's not totally true - Shannon writes Spuffy really, but doing it that way round didn't work as well in the limerick.

I'm slow, so had pretty much assumed a hypothetical Shannon...

::groan::

Yep, the claim that you've got a brain that's non-stop wacky brilliance was right on track.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: June 30th, 2007 01:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!

Who said that? I'm not always whacky (see the previous drabble 'Deserted Cities of the Heart' for proof of that) and, although I'd like to claim non-stop brilliance, I doubt if I can live up to that.

Both were great fun.

*chokes on tea* Oh, but that was quite a lot of pun to read :)

Inconceivable!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: July 2nd, 2007 08:36 am (UTC) (Link)
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
ozma914 From: ozma914 Date: July 6th, 2007 04:58 am (UTC) (Link)

Have fun storming the castle!

That is one of the more quotable movies, isn't it?
cbtreks From: cbtreks Date: July 1st, 2007 08:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Does that qualify as an off-color pun?

Very funny!
